The foundation of the Pontifical Orthodox Old Catholic Apostolic See of Sts. Stephen and Mark

The Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church, Inc. (ARRCC, Inc.) is an international service foundation
and corporation dedicated to helping others, without regard to who they are. It is the foundation of the
universal communion, the Imperial Roman Church (Apostolic See of Sts. Stephen and Mark),
and its primary constituent jurisdictions,
the Anglican Patriarchate of Rome
and the Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicate.

Every year the ARRCC, Inc., the Stato Pontificio Imperiale di Roma-Rutenia, and
its humanitarian wing, the Pontifical Wasingham Guard,

and its other affiliated organisations provide significant amounts
of time and resources in service to others. The foundation promotes
focus on the needs of others rather than reward.

The Stato Pontificio Imperiale di Rome-Rutenia constitutes an ecclesiastical sovereignty by right of Rome as heir to the Roman Empire with an independent government in special consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (as the Anglican Rite Roman Catholic Church). Additionally, the church is of the Pontifical Orthodox Old Catholic faith and descends from the See of Utrecht, which was granted autonomy in 1145 by Pope Eugene III and confirmed in 1520 by Pope St. Leo X in the Bull Debitum Pastoralis. As the sole successor of Pope St. Leo X and temporal successor of St. Peter the Apostle, the Catholicate and Patriarchate are fully Catholic and holds the same canonical authority as the Roman Communion (Vatican). The Catholicate and Patriarchate are the ecclesiastical successor to temporal Rome, the temporal patrimony of the Roman Empire claimed historically by right of the papacy. The succession passed to the Catholicate after Benedict XVI by right of Rome and Florence, with the Papa-Catholicos of Rome-Ruthenia with papal authority as temporal successor of St. Peter, and the Pope-Bishop of Rome as spiritual successor of St. Peter and de facto sovereign of the Vatican City-State. Although administratively independent, the Apostolic See embraces as brethren other Catholic, Orthodox, and Anglican bodies, such as the current Roman Communion (commonly referred to as the Roman Catholic Church), the Anglican Ordinariate, Eastern Orthodox Churches, and the Anglican Communion. The Imperial Roman Church is defined as the Gallo-Russo-Byzantine Catholicate, the Anglican Patriarchate of Rome, and the churches of all Bishops recognised by the Catholicate. The governments of the modern republics of Italy, German, France, Switzerland, Russia, Belarus, Ukraine, and the United States, and of the modern kingdoms of Great Britain and Spain, as well as the European Union and all other civil states, are not affiliated with the Stato Pontificio government in exile.
